.DISCUSSION...
The April 17-18, 2018 06 UTC TAF discussion follows:

&&

.AVIATION...
Unrestricted ceilings and visibilities are expected to continue
through the TAF period.

For tonight, southerly winds will continue with a 50 to 60 knot
low-level jet resulting in low-level wind shear (LLWS). Winds will
veer toward the south-south west or southwest and become quite
gusty in the morning--especially across western Oklahoma.

By the evening, a cold front will enter northwest Oklahoma with
gusty northwesterly winds behind it. Ahead of the frontal, LLWS
may develop once again across central Oklahoma.

There is an outside chance that smoke from any wildfires could
impact a terminal in the afternoon/evening, which would reduce
visibilities. The greatest probability for wildfires will be
across western Oklahoma and adjacent parts of north Texas.
